Drake’s corduroy Mk.I Games Blazer: Review 

December 9th 2022

This is the Mk.1 Games Blazer from Drake’s in russet corduroy. To be honest, I’ve lost track of the numbers and which style each is, but the important thing is that this one's a fairly regular jacket with notched lapels - not the version...

They do. The finish is a little simple, not at the level of some of the things we cover, but it is a good price. You get what you pay for. I'm not planning any reviews currently, no. I don't really cover many RTW jackets...

The steamy social experiment that is a PS party

November 25th 2022

I’ve learnt a couple of things about glass-fronted shops recently. One is they magnify heat: even on a cold day, an hour’s worth of afternoon sun heats up the space to an incredible degree. I’ve no idea how this is workable in the...

Double brown: Just a touch less subtle

November 7th 2022

I think there's a useful variable in considerations of how we dress that we haven't talked about explicitly before: how subtle or showy clothes are. I might write a longer piece on it at some point, but I think it's essentially a spectrum from the v...
